ArtSea: A Convergence of Ocean Conservation Awareness Through Art & Marine Science

Submitted by on – No Comment
unnamed-21 South Florida is known for its beautiful beaches and waterways, which play a big role in our tourist economic impact, and allows locals to enjoy natural amenities. Because of this, it’s vital that we generate a need for conservation and ocean awareness, starting here, at home. The Big Blue & You, through their event ArtSea, taking place on March, 4th, does just that!

ArtSea employs art and education to connect community members, of all ages, through discovery of the the ocean. Numerous art and science stations provide event-goers a chance to explore and learn about the ocean in a variety of hands-on activities and demonstrations. Guests will receive an “ArtSea Passport”, guiding them through each activity station. After completing their passports, the attendees receive a free gift bag full of in-kind goodies.

Throughout ArtSea, guests will learn about The Big Blue & You’s youth outreach programs, as well as discover a wide range of opportunities to help the big blue ocean.

“The Big Blue & You believes youth are the leaders of today. We provide the platform for young people to creatively express themselves and help find solutions that will aid in the survival of our precious oceans.” Danni Washington, Founder Big Blue & You. “We are thrilled again this year to be featuring “UM Ocean Kids”, an initiative created by Dr. Jill Richardson (UM Professor), that inspires and excites children of all ages and demographic areas of South Florida  about Marine Science.”
